The first Georgia location of an international burger chain is slated to open in Midtown's Shops at Metropolis.


Franchisee Devenchie Battle hopes to open Burgerim by Jan. 1, if not sooner, according to Keller Williams' Charlie Gonzalez.

The chain — which has 170 locations in places such as Romania, Russia, Germany, United Kingdom, Indonesia, Australia and Singapore — operates differently than many burger restaurants.

Instead of offering one burger meant to be a meal, it sells 2.8-ounce mini burgers in orders of two, three, eight or 16.

Patrons choose from nine kinds of patties including Wagyu beef, lamb and salmon. Lettuce, tomato and onion toppings go on the bottom; customized ingredients go on top.

The fast-casual restaurant will serve beer and wine. It will also provide entertainment in the form of live music.

"The goal is to appeal to the wide range of demographic in that area," Gonzalez said.

The 2,704-square-foot space —which is being designed and built at 933 Peachtree St. — was formerly occupied by the public safety program Midtown Blue.

The operations for Midtown Blue and Midtown Green relocated last month to the nearby Viewpoint building, according to a Midtown Alliance spokesperson.

Burgerim is already open in California and has leases to open in other U.S. cities including Miami, Houston, Dallas and Memphis.
